. but tonight, the question will be what our esteemed analysts think about the future of the united states as we stand here at the end of 2009. we really have an extraordinary group of panelists. let me just share their introduction so everyone knows who they are. i have learned that people like introductions. certainly, i like it louise gives me that wonderful introduction. we will first hear from richard haas, counsel for relations, who has worked with two presidents. as council president, he has truly been an entrepreneurial leader. it has always been important, but richard has he brought many scholars and expertise and wide range of subjects. his most recent book is called a " war of necessity, war of joyce," -- "war of necessity, war of choice." glenn hubbard is no ordinary academic. he is dean of columbia business and a tenured professor of finance and economics at the columbia school of arts and sciences. he has worked for the treasury and as a consultant to the federal reserve bank, and recently he wrote a book called "healthy, wealthy, and wise -- five steps to better health care system
. that is what happened in the united states and what is happening in europe and what is happening in asia. i think at one time we could have another bubble and as bubble is going to be bigger from the other. the united states, now the cost of financing their debt is about $50 billion a year. looking at $900 billion in 2020. obviously the problem of that accelerating and putting investors at risk. in dubai we have a big bubble and i think abu dhabi has to put the burden of correcting a miscalculation. >> professor, what do you think is abu dhabi's position. it is not entirely clear whether they will underwrite the whole thing or pick and choose which of the debts they are going to deal with. >> obviously -- they say they cannot -- they probablyavto put first of all a new regulation a new role and they have to tighten the belt. they cannot just bail out and then go into another problem. but so far, the central banker of dubai -- liquidity, but they said they have to pick and choose. they don't have to reschedule all of that but they have to schedule some of that. this is going to be a new equa
is to understand the circumstances that are going on right now in terms of the compromise of the united states sovereignty by what's happening to the dollar with deficits budget to be positive so the last third of this book is solutions. what we can do as a subtitle says fighting new world order, surviving the global depression and preserving u.s. sovereignty. so the themes of this book at the last third or to give solutions and call to action for how we can organize our lives, how we can organize politically in order to fight back to say no to a global new deal. now, to get everyone's mind of around the idea of america for sale, i like to start at this way. we currently have page 24 of the book and document we have got about a 65.5 trillion what the t negative net worth. now what that means, that is according to the department treasury's own statistics. once a year the deeper and the treasury does a gap accounting and david walker, who was the head of the government accountability office actually resigned in 2008 it went on the week up to our alarming people, telling people essentially that i
moved back to the united states when i was a baby and lived there till i was five in rochester, new york. this was after it had become safe for war resisters. my father worked in a health clinic in the state, and my mother worked at a cable access channel. they both decided they preferred it in canada. my father preferred the single payer health care system. my father preferred that. my mother was working for the national film board, which is a public institution that allowed her to make the political films that she wanted to make. they left the u.s. because of stayed in canada because of the social programs. >> do you remember when you first learned of this story and it sunk in? >> in canada, you did not have to be rich to get sick. i feel i always knew the story about health care. this was explained to me as a kid. i did understand that it was unfair that people were denied access to medicine because they did not have money to pay. as a doctor, my father preferred to work in a system whereby money did not have anything to do with the care that you received. i feel like i have always k
effect. a recent study by our national academy of sciences found that here in the united states burning fossil fuels leads to almost 120 billion dollars in health costs a year. most of those costs are premature deaths, and we know that the cost in human lives can be even higher in countries we merging economies that have fewer resources to improve air quality. for all of these reasons, president obama and i understand that we cannot wait any longer to act. president obama has made it clear that he's committed to passing comprehensive energy and climate legislation that will create millions of new jobs and secure clean energy sources that are made in america and work for america. but in the meantime, we're looking for ways that we can start reducing this threat right now. last friday i saw some of you at a white house stakeholder briefing i hosted with lisa jackson, the administrator of our environmental protection agency. at that briefing we talked about many of the steps my department is taking in this area from funding research on the health costs of greenhouse gas emissions to invest
in israel is likely to increase and the pressure from israel on the united states is very likely to increase. but we have seen in the past that there are precedents that the united states can prevent israel from taking military action, precisely because of the fact that israeli military action against iran would spell disaster for the united states in the region, which has been made very clear by admiral mullen, as well as other military figures in the u.s. so in the past we've seen examples in which the united states actually has successfully prevented israel from taking military action. >> thank you. >>> let's talk about the economy now. the chairman of the federal reserve goes before a senate committee this week as lawmakers consider a second term for ben bernanke. he's getting a headstart on the discussion with an opinion column in today's "washington post." bernanke argues against several moves under way in congress designed to limit the central bank's independence. bernanke's words, we should be seeking to preserve, not degrade, the institution's ability to foster financial stability a
be said you would save for a man who combined a career as commander in chief of the united states army, and that was how congress does it made him commander in chief with his second existence as agent 13 in the spanish secret service. 11 years he commanded the nations forces, he dowson its forces, patrolled its frontiers and for most of that time, he also said america's military secrets to the largest power in the hemisphere. and if spain had acted a little more vigorously on the warnings of agent passed on they would have carried the lewis and clark expedition and put a halt to the expedition. and they did heed his advice about fortifying the border with texas and so they kept the united states out of texas for about a generation things to his warnings he was a pretty effective agent it has to be said. and then there is also his reputation as the man who founded the spanish conspiracy, and the spanish conspiracy was designed to split away kentucky and tennessee from the rest of the country. so a guy like that, you know, he makes snakes seem like a model of rectitude and chameleons, ch
who combined a career as commander in chief of the united states army and that's how congress designated him commander in chief with his second existence as agent 13 in the spanish secret service. 11 years he commanded the nation's forces. he garrisoned its forts and patrolled the forests. and at the same time he fed the military secrets to the largest power in the hemisphere and if spain had acted a little more vigorously on the warnings that agent 13 passed on they would have captured the lewis and clark expedition and put a halt to their westward exploration. and they did heed his advice about fortifying the border with texas and so they kept the united states out of texas for about a generation thanks to his warning. so he was a pretty effective agent. it has to be said. and then there's also his reputation as the man who founded the spanish conspiracy and the spanish conspiracy was designed to split away kentucky and tennessee from the rest of the country. so a guy like that, you know, he really makes sort of snakes seem like a model of good and chameleons look good compa
think if you add up the troops that the united states will commit as well as those that nato countries are going to commit and that's still a work in progress on the latter. i'm told by senior defense officials that general mcchrystal will be more or less satisfied with the number that he believes he needs to do the counterinsurgency campaign that he laid out in his strategic assessment earlier this year. >> suarez: now, it takes a while to get everybody deployed, doesn't it? >> it does. it will take several months, actually several weeks for the first troops. but the marines that you mentioned will be going in first early next year to be followed soon after by a number of... several hundred perhaps up to a thousand army trainers. these will be doing the initial training of afghan recruits. the recruits will then be put into their units and partnered with american units on the ground. this will be a phased deployment going over the next 12 to 18 months. the troops that you mention in your broadcast, up to some 30,000 or so will be phased in over that time frame. >> suarez: once all tho
manufacturing jobs in the united states. before you head to break, work or school. >> temperatures not a bad start for us, but changes on the way. some wet weather too. we'll talk about when the wet weather gets here. >> reporter: good morning from the mta. for your commute start, you'll find a 5 minute delay on the metro subway. marc train operating on time. on the buses, look for heavy volume on 7, 23 and 19 bus lines and number 36 bus using alameda and 736 street due to construction. for the mta transit team, i'm mark jones. >>> the nutcracker is coming to the hippodrome december 24-26. call that number on your screen if you'd like tickets. we'll be right back. so, did you get your son anything yet? yeah, i got him that transformers revenge raptor thing. yes, the ramjet raptor, introduced to the transformer family in may of '09. i prefer the skywarp figure with six guided missiles and also comes with a limited-edition collectors card.

is the optimal solution to provide necessary medical treatment to everyone and the united states in a way that controls health care costs. pnhp doesn't, however, take a position on how congress members should vote on the legislation that is currently proceeding for congress. we do provide information to members about whether the legislation is likely to be ctive, and how icompes to a national single payer health care system. we joined the many health care reform advocates across the nation who are disappointed by the health insurance reform legislation that is passing through congress. we, like you, are seriously concerned by the health care environment in the united states. we are saddened by the number of people, our patience, family and friends who are donner and because they cannot receive or for access to health care. we are saddened by the number of people facing bankruptcy or foreclosure of their homes and those who are suffering needlessly because they cannot afford or have access to medical treatment. the anticipated a health care debate this year that would focus on the trees st
seized a tank of crude oil from saudi riot -- saudi arabia to the united states. the 28 person crew was off the coast of somalia at the time. we have told you about several hijackings before but this is the second time only that pirates have hijacked an oil tanker. it is not clear how much oil was on board the ship, but it could be worth millions and more importantly it could wreck environmental havoc if the pirates dump it. host: also today, -- bill: also today, we are waiting on news from the white house to help struggling homeowners. this is truly startling news. the government is set to use a shame game to step up pressure on mortgage companies because they are not doing enough to keep homeowners in their homes. the way that i understand it, the new program would be aimed at lenders? >> the banks are going to be publicly blamed. they have taken this bailout money but they are not bailing out homeowners. they are going to appoint officials to oversee the operations of these lenders on a day-to-day basis. plus they will demand a plan from the lenders to speed up help for homeowner
in the united states of america. a very audacious objective with brilliantly executed jeans. she then spent the rest of her life trying to convince the local governments miami-dade county and miami beach to develop the ordinances and other necessary legal mechanisms to protect this a national historic district. unfortunately she died three years before the full realization of her ever. but now there is a st. i believe it is tenth st. which is named for barber. eyesight her because she is the kind of person and that i believe all americans can be if they have a sufficient amount of internal self-confidence and a willingness to acquire the competencies' to be an effective citizen. this book, it "america the owner's manual" is devoted to preparing all americans for active and effective and honorable citizenship. i have defined and in this is totally my doing, but what are the 10 essentials skills of effective citizenship? barbara had most of those skills. she had the skills through her experience in marketing with a knowing the customer and how to influence the customer because of her backgrou
't afford this plan. but it fwroings light the debt many countries bring on. particularly the united states. if we keep bringing on debt other countries are going to wonder if they are every going to get their money back. >> what do you think to be snn >> well, i love they are creating a tax bill and calling it a health plan equally as stupid as billing a snow machine and snow world inside a hotel at dubai. i would offer that the size of the dubai g.d.p. is as big as highway shoy i don't think from the second-place -- >> it's the size of their debt in relation to what they can aforward and dubai had one of the highest debts per cap tae. now ours is about 60 g.d.p. is our debt here's the point, the rich countries can afford to carry the debt. the problem is when they get too far extended like a dubai or maybe a japant on the flip side you have countries like to you keep going down this road and pushing the vop. gina? >> i think this is ridiculous saying the reason we shouldn't have health-care is because of what's happening in dubai, this health care proposal is about $8 billion over 10 year
, christine, thanks. >>> looks like a bit of a bounceback from friday selloff here in the united states. here's where the futures stand right now. you do have the dow jones futures a little bit above fair value and the s&p, as well. looks like the nasdaq could open with modest losses. several hours before we do begin trading. busy week of course, we do have retail sales from this past holiday weekend to keep a close eye on cyber monday. a lot of online shopping to be done today. and we look forward to the confirmation hearings beginning this thursday for the fed chairman ben bernanke and also that jobs report, that key one coming, of course, on friday. let's take a look meantime at where the bund yield sits right now as we take a look at the ten-year bund yield edging up a touch here and then the ten-year treasury in the united states edging up, as well. most of the focus has been on the shorter end of the curve as the two-year treasury yield hit its lowest level this year. take a look at gold, as well, certainly a lot of focus there, the dollar edging weaker today and gold down a touch $5 or
% below 2005 levels as the target. host:: ñ were other countries waiting to hear from the united states? guest: absolutely, turn it came out the day after. they had been clearly waiting. -- china came out the day after. they had been clearly waiting. host: what are the5 sticking points in the negotiation? guest: there are two things. what is the target that was set last week. the other is the financing. there was an agreement with developing companies that would take actions in return for financing from the wealthier nations. we have taken care of the target. we have stepped up with the target and now we need to step up on the financing side. host: it was stated last week, president obama has set goals to reduce emissions and you were quoted as saying that the president is walking a nice edge. can you expand on that? guest: he is in a very narrow space. on the one hand, he had to take a stand that would encourage india and china that we would, in fact, take a stand. and he also led to do it in a way that would not hurt his chances with congress. for 12 years, congress has been asking fo
hands with the president of the united states. look at that picture. the prime minister of india is standing a few feet away. now, then they go have -- let's get a picture with joe. joe's a good guy. can i get my hands on the vice president? apparently they've been used to doing this kind of stuff. look, folks. let me play this for just a moment. what if they were experts in martial arts? what if they had some kind of poison or undetectable drug on them? the secret service failed big-time here. now they're scrambling to figure out, oh, gosh, what went wrong? the "washington post" had this report. these folks, they were allowed inside, in violation of secret service policies by an outside officer of the front gate who was persuaded by the couple's manner and insistence as well as pressure of keeping lines moving on a rainy evening. well, i think there has to be a no-tolerance policy in all of this. you don't play games with the president's safety. let's see now. this is a president who has had a 400% increase in death threats. he gets about 30 a day. not to mention it's very disre
measure before the united states senate in which no member on this side of the aisle has been consulted in any way -- i would point out to my colleagues historically there has never been a major reform implemented by the congress of the united states unless it's by a -- unless it's bipartisan in nature and i don't believe that the american people want this 2,000-and-some-page monstrosity, which is full of -- which is full of all kinds of provisions that they are either unaware of or even in the study of this legislation many of us have also become unaware of. but fundamentally the bernie madoff accounting, the enron accounting that's been going on with this bill is dependent on envisioning a half a traldz in cuts -- half a trillion dollars in cuts are not attainable. if they are attainable, it would mean a curtailment or reduction in what we promised the senior citizens of this country. it's not acceptable. so what this -- what this -- this motion to commit does, it sends it back to the finance committee. come back with another bill. only this time don't put the cost of it on the backs
states at the end. but this would only be possible if the united nations were able to get to the end. >> been at camp david, five months later, tony blair insisted that the roots to military action should be through the united nations. >> the prime minister laid out the case for a couple hours. he also, at this point, said it might be necessary to have two interventions. >> time and again, mr. blair came back to the same point. >> the prime minister said going through the united nations was absolutely essential. >> so how was that -- how was it when support from the united nations can do nothing that mr blair took the country to war? >> he thought it w the right thing to do. he thought that there were no alternatives. he meant to deal with the disarmament issue. >> so mr blair went the military to investigate options for an invasion nine months before it happened. then, in the aftermath of saddam hussein's downfall, a group in at the white house expected to be like germany and japan at the end of world war ii. sir david left the inquiry having set up the case for tony blair's defense
to the contrary. demjanjuk was deported from the united states in maynd is chged with being an accessory to the murder o almost 28,000 jews at a nazi death cam in poland. the trial, as you n imane, is major story in germany and drew survors of the holaust who are coinced of demjanjuk's ilt, as we hear in this repo from our german partner deutsche welle. >> reporter: the past still haunts him. he spent 11months at auswitz. his parents and s brother were killed in the death campn sobibor. heas traveledto munich from his home in the netherlands. he's among 30 who will b attending the trl. ere's no doubt in his mind that john demjanjuk is guilty, and he wants to see him convicted. >> translator: i makes no dierence whether he's 9 years old 90. he did it. was there. i can' say whether he mdered my parents, but he was involved in their killing. >> reporter: demjanjuk has consistently dend ever being at sobibor. one of the toughest challenge cing prosecor will be to answer the question surrounding the identity of the 89-year-old. questionthat may never be answed. in 1988,he wasentenced to deat
a little bit more about what the fed's been concerned about in the united states, which is, of course, commercial real estate. most of the stuff that was going on, dubai was overbuilding. they lost tenants or didn't get tenants. and they tried to obviously create a tourist destination in the middle of the desert. now that we've had a global slowdown and business has dropped off, obviously their bull's eye for really representing the problems of commercial real estate. which, by the way, if you take a couple more steps back, if you look t it, who are the banks that are affected by this? obviously in the uae we know that a tremendous amount of european banks have debt of the uae. but also a little bit in the united states. citigroup as well. the people that find themselves who are going to be hurt by this could also be small and medium-sized firms here in the united states as banks globally pull back, have to put aside loan loss reserves. and, of course, not lend much to the small and medium-sized firms. >> andy bush, you were mentioning the fed. is there a lesson for the fed here? what
. you know, we all grow up under the smith that anyone can run and be president of the united states, right? this is the national lower. but if you try to beat anyone and you are not the party favorite of one of the two major parties, wrote to you. it is nearly impossible to run an effect did national presidential campaign out side of the two parties this time and that's because we have systemic barriers, and even if you have a supremely qualified candidates, even if you have popular support. we have systemic barriers that have made it difficult to compete. and there is no level playing field. so when jim bennett writes in his book, the system is rigged and nobody cares, i know what do he speaks. let's start with ballot access. well, actually let's start with the regulatory system. if you haven't had the pleasure of reading 11 cfr, the code of federal regulations for campaign finance, i suggest you do so. as one person i interviewed at the campaign election it was i said i am a lawyer, i'll be able to figure this out. and he said well know, it's really like asking a general practitio
to today's policy decisions today at the white house. what is relevant is the cost to the united states of this expanded mission, and we will touch more on that tomorrow night, but on the costs, much more likely to add to the cost of the u.s. troops involved in the theater there. bret: two tunisians held at guantanomo bay have been held over to italian authorities. the justice department say they face arrest warrants there and will be prosecuted. the supreme court has thrown out a a lower court ruling that ordered the release of pictures allegedly showing terror suspects being abused by american captors. justices ordered the second u.s. circuit court of appeals to take another look at the lawsuit filed by the aclu which wants the pick pictures publicized. president initially did not oppose the release and then changed his mind. a lot of people are changing their minds about the theory of man made global warming on the heels of a major scientific scandal concerning researchers and their behavior. wendell goler reports this renewed skepticism comes as president obama prepares to attend th
assaulting a child. >>> somali pirates have hijacked a tanker on its way to the united states. a european union spokesperson says the ship was taken about 800 miles from somalia yesterday. it has 28 crew members, none of them from the united states. somali pirates have taken dozens of ships, but this may be only the second attack of an oil tanker. >>> tiger wood sincere talking about a car accident over the weekend, but he's not talking to police about it. rafer weigel has more about that. >> tiger and his wife erks elin, turned away from cops. under florida law, he technically does not have to talk to police. his attorney says, quote, it's a private matter. the accident happened early friday when woods ran his suv over a fire hydrant and crashed into a tree. he did release this statement on his website yesterday which reads, in part, although i understand there is curiosity, the many false, unfounded and malicious rumors that are currently circulating about my family and me are irresponsible. the only person responsible for the accident is me. that's a curious statement, robin. a tabloid
hurt as bad as you can get. every time it comes to small people in the united states they say they do not have enough money. now they are going to allocate 40,000 more troops with $50 billion of cost? the money is catching fire from flying out of the treasury so quickly. why can we not help our own people? the people that pay the taxes? this is a waste, these men dying for stupidity. host: how closely are the american people starting to link health care legislation with the war in afghanistan? guest: a good question. something that the liberal members are starting to ask about, they are going after this point more precisely, suggesting that the money made in afghanistan, the more made the better. it is a longstanding argument going back to vietnam and even before. i am not sure that there is that much of a direct linkage in the minds of many people. many people still see the afghanistan situation as a response to 9/11, even if it has not been handled particularly well. host: another david is calling, this one is a republican from st. petersburg, florida. caller: the message that needs
service and the united states attorney in that area. >> just a follow-up on april's questi question. >> her question was a follow-up. >> a triple follow on, the social office knows the list -- >> sheryl -- >> they would have overheard the couple announce themselves and it wouldn't have required a phone call. it wouldn't have -- they would have flagged it right away. would it not -- >> if the couple wouldn't have come it wouldn't have required a phone call. >> that's true, too. >> i understand, and -- and generally when people have questions, sheryl when you have a question, april, when you have a question, i don't have to be there in person to answer your question despite the fact that you may announce your question. generally you can pick up the telephone and reach me right there in my office. >> the press secretary robert gibbs getting pounded with some serious questions there. let's bring in our senior white house correspondent ed henry once again. ed, you had your own questions for the press secretary. were they answered? >> reporter: well, not exactly. i mean, what you heard ro
: yeah. and what's interesting is -- as far as the united states is concerned, you know, the u.s. government's always supported dubai as an experiment because it is such a moderate place. you have iranians coming here -- and by the way there's a lot of iranian money here, which is interesting in light of the nuclear reactors. saudi arabians come here, it's this sort of mecca for people to come and let their hair down, take off their traditional garb if they want to, but you do have a lot of europeans too. is there need for a tourist hub here? you really can make the argument for yes. they always say there's 400 million people within a three-hour flight, 400 million wealthy people. there's billions within that distance from here that they think can really come and spend money. and there is something to be said for that. there is no sort of caribbean. there's an atlantis here. and you look at it across the water and you literally think that you're at the other atlantis. this is the caribbean maybe for the middle east and for europe. maybe it go way overbuilt, but you do still hav
to protect the president of the united states without anyone coming in. now because social office did not have that other layer of checks and balances [ inaudible ] this happened. [ inaudible ] >> i'm going to let the investigation put the onus on where the onus should be. >> how much more complicated is it for robert gibbs the rest of the folks in the white house given that desiree rogers in the office as close to the obamas as anybody in the white house? >> absolutely. she is part of the inner circle at the obama white house. so, of course, people at the white house are going to be reluctant to cast any blame or aspersions on one of the best friends of the first family. and we don't really know. i'm not saying that the blame belong there is at this point. but it is interesting there was this change of procedures that may have contributed to the lapse. nobody looks good here, could you argue bravo, which may have unwiltingly encouraged the salahis to do this. >> a lot we don't know as well about as well. worth knowing. >> michael isikoff writes the blog, declassified. thanks for comi
proposes the united states will win the war. as it stands, there are 68,000 u.s. troops in afghanistan, and there's every indication today that mr. obama will announce he plans to deploy an additional 30,000 to 35,000 u.s. troops. back in august, general stanley mcchrystal, the top u.s. commander in if afghanistan, argued that a troop increase was essential, and that the u.s. had a window of a year or less to stabilize the country before the cause would be lost. today at the white house, spokesman robert gibbs gave a broad preview of the president's speech. >> the president will reiterate the importance of why we're there. but also, by all means, very early on acknowledge the tremendous cost and sacrifice to our men and women in uniform. >> as the white house prepares for tomorrow night's address, there is great anticipation in afghanistan where u.s. troops are ratcheting up the fight with taliban and al qaeda forces for much of the year. and tamron, u.s. troops have been waiting for this decision ever since august when the top u.s. commander may h made his initial request. >> and davi
of thousands of combat troops from the united states that are going to be directly involved in taking on insurgents in this growing taliban. this could be kind of a murky mission, if you will. that's what people are afraid of. senior administration officials i talked to say, look, they understand the president has to make it very clear what the mission is and that in fact the afghanistan government has a commitment on its side and there's going to be an exit strategy here. they are not going to be tied down in something unending. >> as the president gets ready to address the nation tomorrow night, what do we expect the president to say. >> reporter: there are going to be some things that are very clear. first of all, we're talking somewhere in the rarng of 35,000 additional forces that the president is going to call for. this is going to be a total of 100,000 or so on the ground in afghanistan. the cost they are talking about $75 billion a year for this war effort. but they are going to say that, look, nato allies are contributing 5,000 forces or so. clear expectations from the afghan
